PAGE TTTO BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS THE NATION TODAY Much Talk in Paris Concerning Germany's Future But Outcome Still is Anything But Certain By Jarne* Ma daw WASHINGTON, Mar 30.WV-The bigger you are, the Ic.w chance there Is tar ID outsider to tell you what to do. : What hu happened In Detroit, and what's happening in rails, are (ood examples. The Ford Motor Company and the CIO Auto Workers' Union are pretty big. They had » disagreement and * strike. .' They, talked for days, couldn't reach an agreement, and finally decided lo let an outsider, an arblt- 'rator. settle the argum'nne for them. But when you move hHo the realm of nations, you're dealing with the biggest there is. • And that's the case with the ^united Stater, Russia, Britain and France. The foreign ministers ol those four countries have been meeting in Paris for a week, talking out an agreement on Germany. One Aralnst Three. ' So far tney've been miles iipart. ;with Russia pitching for what she Slants and the other three, sland- ;llig together, wauling something lelse. Since It's .unlikely the Russians came to the Paris talks without ,ome cards up tlicir sleeves. It's ititl too early to talk of the outcome. All four foreign ministers, tnrlud- '••irig Russia's Vishhvsky. who not long ato was screaming at the west, arc "being very polite. In fact, Hie New York Times even used the word "gentlemanly' to describe the conversations. But at tlie rate they're going thcj ;miy keep on being polite for weeks : and wind up nowhere. If they break up. as they've broken up In the past, at the end of .» dead-end street, they just pick up their marbles and go home. And no outsider, like an arbitrator, can be called In to make •decision for them and tell them what ea9h must do. They're all too big to let an outsider do their thinking for them, • rid each has too much at stake. It's too soon to pass judgment on what's happening In Paris because the meeting only started last Monday and because— What's happened so fur. at least on the part of the Russians, looks more like sparring than anything else. RunU Wants Reparation* So far the Russians haven't contributed * new Idea about Germany at all. The suggestions they've marie for running Germany were either : tried In the past and failed or they're. outdated. The Russians certainly want to win th« good-will of the Germans but 'after a week In Paris they havent offered one Idea that would Increase their popularity. ; in Par example: They're still talk- Ing of netting $10,000,000.000 In reparations from Germany for the i war. The West said that's too tough : on th« Germans. 1 In the conversations »o far the .West has looked like a friend of 4he Germans. The Russians are still talking of Inflicting severe penalties on the Germans for the war. MONDAY, MAY 30, J nivtrsity of Graduates to Organize Half Century Club June 4 PAYETTEVILLE, Ak..

On th.s Memorial Day, 84 years after Lee offered his sword In sur- rendei lo Grant at Appjomatox, only a handful are left. Just how miiny no one knows.
